This is an interesting product, used to be called the WePad. Seems pretty neat, physically bigger than the iPad, but then bigger screen too. Not sure I'd go for it, not really in need of a tablet PC, but impressed by it's specs nonetheless.


I know I'm going straight for a bit of Apple bashing here, but I find this bit of the technical details quite funny:


Go back 2+ years and the idea that a product of this sophistication would feel the need to point out it supports such well established technology would make you laugh. Oh how times are a changing...

Cool. I hope this fares better than the Joojoo, which got some pretty bad reviews.
I'll be watching this one...

Why do I get a bad feeling that eventually tablet hardware will be free; you'll just have to tolerate constant ads in return.
